Ice Cream Party-2

#MeToo

I recently came across one of those “If you____, then post this as your status” things. I don’t know what you call those. They’re not “memes,” and they’re not “chain mail,” though they kind of have the feel of both.  This one, though, was posted by someone I know who doesn’t normally engage in those […]

Letter to My 21 Year Old Self

Mommy Mingling: The Challenge of Making New Friends

I recently posted a meme on the Indy Moms Blog Instagram page: “Anyone that says cliques end in high school have obviously never been through the ordeal of trying to make mom friends.” And it blew up with likes and comments.
